Dont worry about lack of apps,this is newly developed platform,takes some time for main apps to be introduced,few months atleast.besides the display quality,nokia has outdone rest of the companies by creating the best smartphone in 5K range even including the best android budget phones on same price range,atleast 80-90% popularity among all top mobile sites proves that.on next asha model,it would be good to add more RAM to 256 mb for much smoother animations/multitasking plus atleast above 166 ppi pixels density with 3.2-3.4 inch screen for better video/game playing experiance and optional dual core processor or better graphic processor and decent battery within price bracket of 8.5-9.5K range with same user friendly platform along with well stocked apps market will annhilate every other android phone till 15K range.very good phone with current features and platform and with few improvements it might become the best budget phone around the globe.oh yea forgot to add,try throwing a 5 megapixel camera with flash on upcoming 3g phone and see your market figures going skyhigh.

In the last 3 days, NOKIA ASHA 501 dropped 4 times from my hand and 1 time in cold water.
But I was surprised to see....!!!!
My cell was still working perfectly. First I thought that my money got wasted, but when I put the battery after one hour in the cell, surprisingly it was working. That's the NOKIA.
NOKIA you rockssssss...........

I have just joined GSMARENA to pass on my review on this Phone. I have used this phone just for a day. This little monster has really blown every low end android phone out of water. this phone is THAT good. Bought this phone for PKR 9200 which is roughly USD 92. i have listed few of its cons and many of its pros.

CONS:
1. Ovi Store not as good as Play Store
2. No Whatsapp, Viber or Wechat supported (as for now)
3. Average Camera result for 3.15MP

PROS:
1. Wonderfull design, one of the best looking phones on the market. It is Cute with so many vibrant colors to suite your mood and personality.
2. Super fluid touch, no lagging.
3. Its not just FASTLANE that makes this Phone Fast, it is whole UI which makes the usage quick.
4. Excellent new FASTLANE.
5. No lagging, fast Internet browsing and connectivity.
6. Beautiful and simple User Interface. This phone is just SIMPLE. No complications of options and sub options.
7. I never thought i would say that but i love touch keyboar of this phone. You can change it to Number Pad or type in normal keyboard mode.

All in all, SIMPLE-FAST-SEXY. Nokia has prove once again that they are not done and they are back with revenge ;)
